The question of whether or not you need to carry a sidearm into a match is an easy one to answer. Yes – you can’t go in with just an AEG and put all your eggs in one basket.
But, specifically, is a green gas Glock worth the money? That’s a little more nuanced, but we still think that a Glock replica can offer you a lot of value and utility as a sidearm. Here’s how we break it down.
- It’s easier to carry extra green gas in the field (than it is to carry batteries)
Allow us to specify; it is easier to carry green gas (or CO2) in the field than it is to carry spare batteries. Batteries are easy to carry, but they can die or drain unexpectedly, especially if you don’t use them a lot. If they do, you’ll have nowhere to charge them.
With a green gas airsoft gun, just replace the canister and you’re ready to get back in the action.
- General ease of maintenance, plus the green gas will keep everything lubricated and is easier on the gun
Another big bonus of carrying a green gas airsoft gun is that they’re easier to maintain because there’s typically a little bit of silicone oil suspended in the green gas solution. This helps to lubricate the airsoft gun and keep everything in good working order.
- Silky smooth operation
Another great thing about green gas Glocks is that they are just a joy to shoot. Like other green gas guns, they have extremely silky smooth actions and crazy-fast cycling time. If you’ve ever had a problem with the “stiff” or “harsh” cycling of an electric airsoft gun or even a CO2 GBB airsoft pistol, then it might be time to upgrade to a green gas model.
- Tons of parts for upgrades and just as many attachments out there
Green gas Glocks are not just as popular and sought after as the original models because they feature smooth operation and the like; it’s also understandable because there are so many parts and attachments that are compatible with them. Glock replica gas airsoft pistols have tons upon tons of parts for upgrades so you can enhance the performance of your gas powered airsoft masterpiece or simply to personalize it. There are also tons of optics, lights, lasers and other attachments that are compatible with them.
- The cool factor is off the charts
Finally, Green gas Glock replicas are just so cool. Many of them are officially licensed gas blowback airsoft pistols and very like the originals in balance, weight, dimensions, operation and aesthetics. Some of the best of these are Elite Force and Umarex airsoft replicas, and very much like the originals in more ways than one. Slick, upgradeable and downright cool, a green gas Glock is a delight to own and shoot. You can get some other run of the mill GBB sidearm, or you can take pride in an Elite Force Glock replica.
